I haven't written in a couple of days because really there's nothing much to report. I've had a few cramps and I've been a bit constipated, but otherwise, I feel perfectly fine. Prune juice is my new BFF.
This two week wait is definitely going to be painful and it's actually 16 days versus 14 days because I had my retrieval on a Sat and they won't do the test on a weekend, so I have to wait until Monday, 3/29 to go in for the blood work. Sucks.
So, what am I occupying myself with as I wait to see if I'm knocked up? Internet shopping. I'm a product whore and I love Sephora, so I've been buying stuff left and right. Really bad considering we just spent a ton of money on IVF, but I've got to do something other than surf IF sites, right?
We're also planning a trip for next weekend. A short local trip to San Simeon, Big Sur and Monterey. I've lived in CA all my life (with a short 4-year stint in NY for college) and I've never been to Hearst Castle. So, we're doing the tourist thing and taking a nice drive down Highway 1 to take in the beautiful coastline and enjoy the spring weather. Hopefully, the rain will stay away!
Do genes matter?
